BEHIND THE SCENES IN HOLLYWOOD
Behind the Scenes in Hollywood is a quick paced, breezy production that offers short, lively updates on coming stars, tidbits about movies in production, and descriptions of wardrobes, engagement rings, and colorful movie anecdotes.
McCormick introduced the series with these words: "Very few of us have the time or opportunity to visit in and around the movie studios in Hollywood and actually see how motion pictures are made... What really goes on before and after the cameras begin to grind... To talk with the stars, directors, artisans, the cameramen, authors, producers, screenwriters, and stand-ins... To learn at first hand all the interesting, colorful things that bring a completed movie picture to a theatre screen..."
To date, the Old Time Radio Researchers Library features eighteen episodes produced in 1945. Each is between ten and twelve minutes. They feature RKO publicist, Bidwell McCormick and a cast of announcers. McCormick would open the show, then Nathan Hale, Nona Rey, or another announcer, would alternate stories, or in some cases, paragraphs, to keep the story fast-paced.
